A TRIBUTE TO OUR INFLUENCES
Friday, May 5th
at 7:30 PM
(Doors Open at 7:00 PM)
First Presbyterian Church Hall
704 Whitney Avenue, New Haven
Current and former members of the CT Folk Board of Directors who are musicians – some professional, and some not – will pay tribute to musicians who strongly influenced them.
In the evening’s first set, the Board members, as individuals and in groups, will perform songs that were originally written and/or recorded by musicians who influenced the music that the Board members write and play. The second set will comprise both original songs and “covers.”
“A splendid time is guaranteed for all.”
The performers will include:
Kate Callahan, Connecticut’s State Troubadour
Pete Kaufman and Ken McEwen (members of Five in the Chamber)
Children and Students: $10
